    11At restore time, multiple parameters are available to modify how the restore will act:
    22
     3nuke
     4    To format and restore all files automatically
     5
     6interactive
     7    To restore some/all files interactively
     8
     9compare
     10    To compare the archives with your filesystem
     11
     12expert

     14
     15RESTORE
     16    To format and restore all files automatically
     17
     18--------------
     19
     20denymods="mod1 mod2"
     21    Add those modules to the list of modules to NOT load
     22
     23donteject
     24    mondorestore will not eject the CD; this is useful if, for instance, your PC's case has a concealed CD-ROM drive
     25
     26forcemods="mod1 mod2"
     27    Add those modules to the list of modules to load systematically
     28
     29nodmraid
     30    Do not try to start dmraid support
     31
     32nohw
     33    Do not call the mindi-rsthw script which try to restore also your BIOSes configuration (Proliant only)
     34
     35nompath
     36    Do not try to start multipath support
     37
     38noresize
     39    Do not resize partitions using a multiplication factor of (New disk size)/(Old disk size) to use your unallocated hard disk space
     40
     41textonly
     42    do not call any Newt library routines; this is unattractive but valuable if you find your Newt library has bugs in it or on ia64
     43
    344usb=/dev/xxx
    4     Use thet USB device name as the place to look for backup content. The way drivers are loaded may lead that to the fact you have a different device name at restore time, compared to the one you used at backup time, making mondorestore unable to use the right device natively. This helper corrects that. Pass to it the device name, not the partition name. Example: usb=/dev/sdb
